One comment that we often hear when we are running family history workshops is 'I wish that I had started my research earlier so that I could have asked my parents or grandparents what they knew about the family' This gave us the idea to develop a family history workshop for families, giving children the opportunity to ask parents and grandparents about their family and their memories. The adults and children will then have the chance to work together to discover more about their family history using resources on level 2 at The Hive, including on-line records such as the census and parish records on microfilm. Children will receive a family tree poster to start recording their research.
The course will run from 4-5pm for four weeks, starting on Tuesday 21st April, so is ideal for anyone looking for an after-school activity. The cost is £32 per family group (1 adult and up to 2 children) and is suitable for children aged 7-12.
